Have More Energy During the Day - Quick Tips!

By Cillin David Hearns  

If ever you've found yourself struggling at 3pm in the afternoon or you need that coffee to kick-start your day then read on. Modern life is robbing us of our natural ability to perform at our very best throughout the day and to keep going well into the evening. Here are some super quick tips for getting the most out of your body and your day.

1. Drink more water... soft drinks and coffee don't count.

The adult male and female body is made up of approximately 65% and 55% water respectively. Drinking water is like drinking more of yourself and it enables the body to function much more efficiently using less energy to do basic tasks such as keeping you alive.

2. Get your 7 - 8 hours of sleep.

People who don't get enough sleep have shorter life-spans. People who sleep too much have shorter life-spans. Don't skimp and don't over indulge.

3. Kick start your day with a routine.

Set yourself up for the day - it's so much more mentally refreshing to start out on the front foot. Think of it as a warm-up before you exercise.

4. Snack throughout the day.

Prepare snacks such as nuts and raw vegetables in the morning and take them with you to work. Snack throughout the day on alkaline-ash forming foods - think nuts, salads, fruits and vegetables. The body can digest these foods so much easier and having a wider range will give you everything you need to thrive throughout the day.

5. Get in aerobic activity for at least 20-30 minutes 3 times a week - daily is better.

Exercise gets the blood flowing throughout the body and brain oxygenating every part of you. It also releases mood-enhancing endorphins that last well beyond the duration of the activity. Why wouldn't you do this?!?!?

6. Cut out the acid forming foods.

Because our bodies are more alkaline than acid in terms of pH when we ingest processed foods, which are generally acid-ash forming, the body has to re-balance (return to homeostasis) the environment expending energy in the process. If our meals are highly acidic in nature the body is forced to draw on its largest store of alkaline... that's right, calcium - leading to, over many years, osteoporosis. What are the biggest causes of acid in the body? You're gonna love this list...

  • Animal protein - meat, eggs, dairy

  • Processed sugars

  • Caffeine

  • Alcohol

  • Nicotine

  • Vinegars

  • Stress

No... wait... what? Dairy? Doesn't that strengthen bones.

7. Treat your day like a series of sprints.

Take a break from your desk every 50 - 60 minutes (maximum 2 hours). Your mind, body, and emotions will thank you for it.
8. Take a lunch break.

Have a light meal and take a walk. See point 5 and get the blood flowing. You're no good to anyone when you're mentally exhausted and everything takes so much longer to do. Develop the discipline to walk away and come back to it after lunch.
9. Take the stairs between meetings.

Blood flow is good.

10. Breath deeply.

An oxygenated cell is a healthy cell is an energised cell.

Turmeric curcumin capsules and supplements, we see them online as well as in our local pharmacy. But what exactly is turmeric curcumin? How do we benefit from it?

Turmeric is one of the culinary spices we often see in our spice rack. It is the major ingredient in Indian curries and the component responsible for some mustard's vibrant color. On the other hand, curcumin is a compound that can only be found in turmeric and it's loaded with antioxidants where experts believe to protect and repair cells from damaged caused by free radicals. Aside from that, curcumin also has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that can help ease pain and inflammation. The said benefits are already common for most people, but what we do not know are the other surprising uses of turmeric curcumin.

As a remedy

Sprain strain can be applied with one part salt and two parts turmeric with enough water for it to be spread into the affected joints for 20 minutes to an hour, once a day while wrap with an old cloth to avoid staining. But if you prefer the easy way, the University of Maryland Medical Center suggests taking turmeric supplements to help reduce the sprain swelling.

Upset stomach can be soothed by 500 mg of turmeric four times daily, according to The National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Achy arthritis can be ease 500 mg of turmeric pills twice daily, base on NIH recommendation. The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin supports arthritis and help lessen the pain for both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

Alzheimer's symptoms maybe decreased by 30% by using curcumin extract base on the clinical trial published in the Journal of Neurochemistry.

Swimmer's ear water problems can be treated with a natural remedy by using warmed garlic oil and a little turmeric to push water out of the affected ear.

Other amazing uses

  • As a homemade toothpaste to whiten teeth. Contrary to its staining prowess, turmeric can also be used to brighten teeth provided that it's not in contact with your teeth long enough to change its color.

  • As a customize foundation. By adding turmeric to tinted moisturizer, the color can be change and have that natural glow that matches the skin tone.

  • As homemade soap. Adding a good amount of turmeric in a homemade soap will definitely boost its skin-friendly benefits.

  • As a natural scalp cleanser. The combination of olive oil and turmeric can help improve the overall condition of the scalp and prevent dandruff. Mix: olive oil, jojoba or coconut oil and turmeric, massage into scalp, leave for 15 minutes, shampoo then rinse.

  • As a meat safer. Base on a scientific research, the levels of heterocyclic amines (HCAs) can be reduced by up to 40 percent by adding turmeric to any meat.

  • As a longevity tea. One of the world's longest average life span is the people from Okinawa, and most of the residents from this Japanese island drink turmeric curcumin tea everyday. It just easy to make, just boil 4 four cups of water and a teaspoon of ground turmeric then allow to simmer for 10 minutes and strain. Adding ginger and/or honey to taste is optional.
